Senate Under-Graduate Committee (SUGC) The Senate Undergraduate Committee is a standing committee of Academic Senate. Senate manual prescribes the constitution of SUGC, and also the process of election of its Chairman. The Chairman of the SUGC convenes and presides over the meetings.

In discharging its responsibilities, the SUGC shall make full use of the appraisals and recommendations of the various academic departments concerned. The SUGC has two standing sub-committees, namely Core Curriculum Committee (CCC) and Academic Performance Evaluation Committee (APEC), and is assisted by the Departmental Under-Graduate Committees (DUGCs). The Chairman of SUGC nominates the Chairmen of both CCC and APEC. These Chairmen, in consultation with the SUGC Chairman, form their respective committees consisting of five faculty members drawn from amongst the SUGC members.
